it's bush's fault
has anybody else noticed that for folks on the left, especially ones that don't really follow the news, seem to blame every single ill in this country on bush?
a coworker yesterday was bitching about how much our company's health care plan sucks, which it does. then she started reminiscing about how great her health care plan at an old job was, but, you know, "that was when clinton was in office."
in another conversation about pittsburgh's current financial crisis, someone felt the need to bring up the "bush keeps saying the economy is getting better, but i don't see it". i wanted to choke him. i know this seems obvious to most, but...1. bush dosen't have anything to do with pittsburgh, it's the idiot democrat mayor that's been doing his best to drive this city into the ground for years, and b. the economy *is* getting better, numbskull.
abu ghraib: bush held the leash. dead civilians in iraq: bush fired the gun. a beheaded prisoner: bush may as well have held the knife. 9/11: bush flew the airplane.
somebody the other day blamed the fact that my army recruiter lied about a few things to me when i enlisted on bush. huh? again, with the obvious: a. recruiters lie, it's what they do, 2. bush has certainly never heard of either me or my recruiter, and iii. i enlisted in 1998. in pennsylvania. nobody here had ever heard of george w. then either.
i guess it's some sort of victimization thing, they need a villian to blame the problems in their own life on (because it certainly isn't their own fault if something sucks in their life). and it isn't pc or goes against their preconcieved ideas of the way life works to blame larger problems on radical muslims, or the dems, or the french, or whoever is actually to blame.
but it freaks me right out, none the less. i stubbed my toe, evil chimp. i got fired for showing up drunk at work, damn bush. the shitter just overflowed and now i have to mop up, those evil republicans.
people are weird.
